disposable soup stock pouches, you can easily get them in Daiso

These disposable soup stock pouches are quite handy to have in the kitchen, especially for making soups and stews. For this soup, we pack the soup pouch with ikan bilis and we added in ginger and red dates for more flavours. When the soup base is ready, simply remove the whole pouch and throw it away. Hassle free.
